          “I see architecture not as Gropius did, as a moral venture, as truth, but as invention, in the same way that poetry or music or painting is invention.”  As an architect I invent spaces that are made to be widely experienced.  They become masterpieces that reflect my creativity, passion and experimental nature.  But along with invention comes responsibility, because really, what is a great invention without reason? This is where my avant-garde evolves, I always keep in mind that architecture designs the world and through design architecture changes the world, giving me the responsibility to continually evolve the world.

            It is this progression of thinking that I want to bring to architecture, with it designs that are truly capable of creating innovative and phenomenal inventions, altering the world one design at a time.

California College of the Arts, BArch, Architecture

Through my time at CCA I have been taught a wide range of conceptual and technical skills that are critical to the design process. By studying under well known design professionals such as (David Fletcher and Andrew Kudless) who come from a wide range of architectural and engineering practices I was able to design in a verity of scales and site conditions around the world.
